Understanding the First Home Super Saver Scheme

Are you a First Home buyer and looking to get into the property market with Orbit Homes?

At Orbit Homes we really do understand that purchasing a brand new home is a big step, so we’ve done some research into the latest financial information for first home buyers. Guess’s good news! The Government will help you boost your savings for your first home by allowing you to build a deposit inside your superannuation.

This is called ‘The First Home Super Saver’, also known as FHSS.

Understanding the First Home Super Saver Scheme

The nitty gritty:

  • From 1 July 2017, you can make voluntary concessional (before-tax) and non-concessional (after-tax) contributions into your super fund to save for your first home
  • From 1 July 2018, you can then apply to release your contributions, along with associated earnings, to help you purchase your first home

*Contributions are up to $15,000 per year and $30,000 in total.

How do you know if you qualify?

You are required to match the below profile:

  • Have not previously owned property in Australia (or the Commissioner of Taxation has determined you have suffered a financial hardship as specified by regulations)
  • Have not previously released FHSS funds
  • Either live or intend to live in the premises you are buying as soon as practicable
  • Intend to live in the property for at least six months of the first 12 months you own it after it is practical to move in

To give you a little bit more guidance, we’ve downloaded the Budget Fact Sheet for you. You can also find more information on the ATO’s website.
